Is facebook really shutting Down? True or False?

Will Facebook end on March 15, 2011? This is the latest trend circulating all over the web. Don’t worry folks, Facebook will NOT be closing down. How did this rumor get started?

According to World News Insight , it started off by the actual website and then of course spread like wildfire on the popular social network Twitter. I know some folks are seeing this headline, and saying

 “OMG! What am I going to do without my Facebook?” No need to panic. Look at it this way, at least this rumor isn’t about another celebrity passing away.

Even more aggravating the same website ( Weekly World News )who had Michelle Obama pregnant, and Michael Jackson spotted on the moon is also reporting about Facebook closing down. They quote ” Starting March 15, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook account.” Don’t believe it. Like I mentioned in an earlier article this month, you can’t really believe this website. Yes, some of their stories are true, but lately they are all hoaxes.

This is not the first time this hoax has been mentioned. Back in 2007, the same rumor went around. Many people were saying the social network was getting sued, or someone else was buying the company. Don’t you think if this was true, it would be all over the television, and better websites such as TMZ, The Huffington Post, or RadarOnline?

So for all you Facebook junkies, no need to get upset and start erasing your friends and your account, because it’s not going anywhere. Continue to do what you do best, and that’s having fun, promoting, and meeting new people.

      I am thinking that there is too many people for it staying open for them to shut it down, so this hoex has no steam.

    • Al says:

      Mark Zuckerberg is loosing control of this website and consequently the site is catering t a lot of people that it shouldn’t be catering to. I have tried this site only to find out that I get viruses from it. This is a site that is for people that have nothing better to do than sit in front of their computer and waste time. Too many kids are wasting valuble time on this site when they could be doing something constructive. Although I think that this is all a bad rumor, I would not loose any sleep is it did close.
